A Brief History
Founded in 1966, the Bulls found success early and often, qualifying for the post-season nine times in their first eleven seasons with legends like Norm Van Lier, Jerry Sloan and Chet Walker leading the way. In the 70s and early 80s, eras dominated primarily by the Lakers and Celtics , the Bulls struggled to compete. And then came the 1984 NBA Draft…
Sitting in the third position, the Bulls watched the Houston Rockets select Hakeem Olajuwon with the first pick. Hakeem, as basketball fans well know, is one of the greatest centers in the history of the game. With the second pick, the Portland Trail Blazers made a decision that would shape both franchises and the entire league forever. Sam Bowie, the player selected with that fateful second pick, went on to play ten years in the league, averaging almost 11 points a game. With the third pick, the Bulls selected Michael Jordan who would lead the team to six titles on his way to becoming a global icon and revolutionizing the business of sports.
The Derrick Rose Era
In 1999, following the second “three-peat” orchestrated by Jordan, Scottie Pippen and head coach Phil Jackson, the Bulls fell out of contention for several years before returning to the playoff picture in the 2004-05 season with an exciting young lineup featuring Tyson Chandler, Eddie Curry and rookies Luol Deng and Ben Gordon. The Bulls returned to the playoffs the next two seasons but it was the NBA Draft of 2008 that once again changed the complexion of the storied franchise. Holding just a 1.7% chance of scoring the first pick, the Bulls hit the lottery and chose Derrick Rose as the new face of the Chicago Bulls.
After winning the Rookie of the Year in 2009, Rose, at just 22 years of age, became the youngest MVP in league history in 2011, but has since had a string of injuries. Luckily, Rose has the support of a talented team for the 2014-15 season - superstar NBA veteran Pau Gasol and young talent Doug McDermott to name a few. The Bulls are aiming for a championship.
